Here is a bento I made a few days ago. Fried rice with minced chicken, garlic, green beans and egg (with gochujang of course!), a little zucchini and tomato salad, and watercress, walnut and orange salad. (The dressing is in a container hiding under the “bonbon”.)
Do you think the bonbon’s face is a bit creepy? It wasn’t meant to be, I just drew it in a hurry and it turned out that way! The bonbon was inspired by something I saw at a foodstore, little natural carob/nut/grain balls that are marketed as “energy bites”. I like healthy treats and these seemed to make so I made some of my own.
Nutty Carob Energy Bites
Whizz a big handful each of organic rolled oats, raisins, walnuts, almonds, flax seeds, and a heaped tablespoon carob (or cocoa) in a food processor. Add a big handful of dessicated coconut, a big spoonful of agave syrup, 3 to 4 tablespoons melted butter or coconut oil, and stir it in. Roll them into walnut sized balls and roll in extra crushed walnuts if liked. Store in an airtight container in the fridge, and wrap in wax paper individually for a transportable treat! They only took a few minutes to make. The storebought ones were $3.50 each…this big batch cost not much more than that! So a much more economical alternative.
This is my last post for a while…I’m going on a holiday! To BARCELONA!! Hasta luego guys! 🙂
